Song about my best friend Danny

lyrics

You're trapped in your body your skin is the jail walls that hold you inside
But there is nobody that sees you the same way that you do so please stop trying to hide
Cuz you're every number from one to a million
That's so many numbers that's so many numbers
And you think you're thinking too much which is thinking too much please stop thinking so much.

Cuz your milky smile's the reason my bones are so strong
My lips are on fire from spitting out flaming words and laughing for so long
The walls of my heart, are the sum of our parts
But it seems like this world can't tear us apart

And my life is series of storm and tsunamis at least I've got a lifeboat
You cared for my body when all I had wanted was to turn sideways and disappear
Cuz you're every color from purple to yellow
That's so many colors, that's so many colors
And you think you're thinking too much which is thinking too much please stop thinking so much

Cuz your milky smile's the reason my bones are so strong
My lips are on fire from spitting out flaming words and laughing for so long
The walls of my heart, are worn down and scarred
So thank god you're here, cuz my god you're smart

And I've been thinking where would I be
Without your two feet standing next to me
And I'll stand here forever or until I fall down
Cuz my feet are too small to keep me off the ground

But your milky smile's the reason my bones are so strong
My lips are on fire from spitting out flaming words and laughing for so long
The walls of my heart, sometimes start to fall
But at least I can lean on you, when my feet feel to small
